Understanding the Ingredients in Our Lubes

When it comes to intimate products, it’s essential to be aware of the ingredients used. Personal lubricants are no exception, and with the growing trend towards a cleaner and more natural beauty routine, finding the best natural options has become a priority.


At La Nua, we understand the importance of using products that are clean, safe, and gentle on the body. While personal preference plays a role in choosing the right lube, it’s crucial to prioritize body-friendliness and safety. 


Of course, we can wax lyrical about the fantastic properties of all our lubes…but we know that some lube users may have questions about the ingredients in each lube. That’s why in this article, we’ll delve into the unique ingredients and potential benefits that make our lubes stand out.

What ingredients are used in La Nua products?


We use only the purest ingredients; all flavors are natural and vegan-friendly. Furthermore, all of our water-based formulas (including the unflavored ones) are safe for consumption.


Our carefully selected ingredients include: 

Acorus Calamus Root 


Acorus Calamus Root Extract, commonly known as Sweet Flag, has been used for centuries in traditional medicine for its potential health benefits, which include the potential to reduce inflammation and improve circulation.


Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract


Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, commonly referred to as Aloe Vera, has been used for thousands of years for its medicinal properties and is referred to as the “plant of immortality” by ancient Egyptians. It is widely known for its moisturizing and soothing properties, making it a popular ingredient in skincare products. 


It provides anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antioxidant, antiseptic, and soothing benefits. It is also rich in natural vitamins such as Vitamin B complex, folic acid, Vitamin C, and other beneficial compounds.


Cellulose Gum


Cellulose Gum acts as a stabilizer to maintain the product’s original texture and physical characteristics and also assists in retaining moisture. It is a plant-based ingredient and is considered safe for use by the FDA.


Chondrus Crispus Extract


Chondrus Crispus Extract, also known as Red Algae, is a rich source of Vitamins A and E. Vitamin A plays a crucial role in supporting reproductive health and immune function, promoting healthy collagen and elastin formulation, influencing cells to behave in a youthful and healthy manner, and supporting the skin’s immune system and natural moisturizing. 


Vitamin E, an antioxidant, helps protect cells from damage throughout the body, keeps moisture in the skin, and softens it. Red Algae also has high sulfur content, which contributes to its antimicrobial, antibacterial, and non-comedogenic properties and balances the skin microbiome.


Citric Acid 


Citric Acid helps maintain a pH level of 4-4.5, which is within the natural vaginal pH range. Citric Acid is a weak organic acid that naturally occurs in many fruits, such as lemons and limes.


Cocamidopropyl Betaine


Derived from coconut oil, Cocamidopropyl Betaine is known for its foaming and cleansing properties, which help loosen and remove impurities.




Dimethicone is a silicone polymer known for its smooth, silky texture and ability to create a protective barrier on the skin. This makes it an ideal ingredient in personal lubricants, as it can help reduce friction and provide a smooth, moisturizing effect during intimate activities.




Dimethiconol is a derivative of dimethicone and has similar properties with added hydration benefits. In personal lubricants, dimethiconol can help increase the lubricant’s viscosity and provide a smooth, silky feel while helping to hydrate the skin.


Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract


Ginkgo Biloba, also known as Ginkgo, is a plant extract rich in antioxidants. It is known for benefits such as improved circulation and reduced anxiety. Ginkgo Biloba extract can help improve blood flow and reduce discomfort, making intimate activities more comfortable and enjoyable. Additionally, its antioxidant properties may help protect against damage from free radicals.




This ingredient is derived from cellulose, a natural polymer found in plants, and is used to create a smooth and silky texture that can help reduce friction and irritation during intimate activities.


Lavandula Angustifolia Oil (Lavender)


A flowering plant in the mint family, Lavender essential oil has been used for centuries to promote calm and relaxation. These calming properties of lavender can help reduce anxiety and promote relaxation, which can be especially beneficial during sexual activity. It’s also known for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help prevent the spread of infections and promote overall vaginal health.


Lepidium Meyenii Root Extract (Maca)


Maca is a root that’s native to the Andes Mountains in Peru. It’s been used for thousands of years for its medicinal properties, including as an aphrodisiac, energy booster, and mood enhancer. Maca is also rich in antioxidants and has been shown to improve overall health. These properties can help create a more pleasurable and enjoyable sexual experience.


Macrocystis Pyrifera Extract (Kelp)

Removes toxins, soothes skin and helps regulate skin tone and texture. It can also help regulate the pH balance of the vagina and promote healthy skin.


Natto Gum

This natural ingredient keeps the lube moist and acts as an antioxidant, protecting cells from damage and promoting overall vaginal health.


Potassium Sorbate


This ingredient is a salt derived from sorbic acid, found naturally in some fruits and berries. It acts as an antimicrobial agent that stops the spread of microorganisms, keeping products fresh and effective.



Used to enhance the texture and absorption, this ingredient acts as a carrier for the other beneficial ingredients. Propanediol is derived from corn and is a safe and eco-friendly ingredient.


Sodium Benzoate


This ingredient is an antimicrobial agent that helps prevent the growth of microorganisms, which can help keep products fresh and effective for longer.


Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate


This ingredient is a stabilizer and rinsing aid that helps mist and foam cleaners rinse and cleanse effectively.


Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter (Cocoa)


Cocoa butter is a popular ingredient in chocolate and skincare products due to its moisturizing properties. It is derived from the cocoa tree’s seeds, native to Central and South America. Cocoa butter has been used for centuries by indigenous cultures for its medicinal properties, including as a treatment for skin ailments since it provides a soothing barrier to the skin, helping to preserve moisture and prevent dryness.


Tynanthus Panurensis Extract (Clavo Huasca) 


Clavo Huasca is a woody vine that grows in the Amazon rainforest. This ingredient is considered a herbal aphrodisiac and is traditionally used for its potential mood-enhancing and anti-inflammatory properties.


Know What Your Body Likes…or Doesn’t Like!


It’s essential to be aware of what your body likes or doesn’t like when it comes to personal lubricants. Like fingerprints, each vagina is unique—what works for one individual may not always work for another. If you have specific sensitivities or concerns, it’s crucial to do your research and choose a lubricant that is compatible with your body.


At the same time, recognize and understand that you are the expert on your own body. No matter your sexual orientation or gender identity, you know your body best and what feels good for you. Whether you’re looking to increase sexual arousal, improve lubrication, or promote vaginal health, choosing a product that suits your needs is crucial.
